Jack up vehicle and support on stands. Remove wheels. Remove differential cover . Locate and remove lock pin that holds cross shaft in. Slide cross shaft out. Push axle inward to release axle c clip. Remove axle and pry out old seal. Install new seal with proper tool.Add some lube to the seal lip to aid axle intallation. Revese removal procedure. This is for a "c" type axle.
Another type has 4 nuts attaching a retainer plate to the backing plate behind the axle flange. In this case the 4 nuts are removed and the axle will come out. This may require a little effort. I think that you have a "c" type axle in your vehicle. Hope this helps. Moe

It might be the bearings that failed and letting the axle rest on the seal. Its a common problem for these cars. I've replaced mine and it did it again so now im replacing the rear end.

You don't have to remove the whole diff to change the seals, but you will have to seperate it where the shaft meets the carrier housing. There is a clip holding the passenger axle shaft in place that you have to remove to change the seal. The drivers side axle stub can be removed with a little force as there is a spring clip holding that side in.

The axle should be able to be removed by using a flat ended pry bar tool with a dull flat end. Or possibly a very large flat screw driver. Put the pry bar between the axle and transmission. With light pressure, the axle should pop out of the transmission. The axle just snaps into the transmission. There should be no need or cause to damage the seal because the seal is inset into the transmission. Just watch what you are doing. As far as replacing the seal, I do not know. I have not had to do that yet, and I have replaced both sides with new boots more than once.

This is a fairly involved job. You will have to remove the brake assy, then seperate the ball joint and remove the axle assy. You will need a seal puller to remove the axle seal (At trans I assume) and a seal driver or something flat to install the seal. You will also need a 32mm socket ( if my memory is correct ) for the axle nut and a torx or hex socket for the brake caliper and a splitting fork for the balljoint. Be sure to tourque the axle nut to spec when reinstalling or you will be replacing a wheel bearing next. Hope this helps...Good Luck.
